OK a few more pis as per Subra's request.

I have had to blur and edit out some obscene stuff (me) standing next to a towering Sikh Para - who was probably embarrassed by me.

One military police guy in one pic

There were models (in perspex display cases) of things - whose pictures did not come out well.

The two that wer passable have been uploaded. One is of different types of patrol formations that the Army uses.

The other is of types of barbed wire barriers. What interested me was the one on the extreme right with is a ground level barbed wire laticework that gets hidden in grqss and is booby trapped to ensure that only body parts get to houriland. Cruel - but hey what the heck - this was no Lalbagh flower show.

Note that I have shown no consideration re filesize - some pics are over 600 kb

Shiv,

Do those patrol formations depict the standard IA section or a section for COIN ops? I am asking this because those sections have 2 LMGs per section. If it is the standard IA section, when did it switch from 1 to 2 LMGs per section?

I am looking for the correct name of this version of the AK - any help?

Interesting arrangement of the safety catch - probably the only AK that allows you to use the safety without removing the finger off the trigger?

I could be wrong of course, but I don't believe that's an AK at all - look at the receiver and the barrel area.

I think it's a Bulgarian(?)-made V.58
